Editors' Review

+

From the makers of the popular scene rendering program Bryce comes DAZ Studio, a powerful freeware 3D modeling and CAD program that looks great, but is a resource hog and can be sluggish for the average user.

The publisher recommends at least 256MB of RAM, but we found that to be wishful thinking. The program runs choppily on anything less than 1GB, although some of the more complex rendering was processed more slowly than others. It also requires an OpenGL compatible graphics card with at least 128MB of RAM onboard, so machines built before 2003 will certainly struggle. This isn't unusual for this kind of program, though.

DAZ offers up a wide array of built-in models and tools and for creating, animating, and recording life-like scenes. Users can purchase additional models through the publisher's Web site. Free tutorials on the site take a bit of the edge off the learning curve, although it's still steep. The feature set is nothing short of incredible: You can take a model, manipulate it, add detail and texture, have it interact with other models, and manage your art files. The tool panels on the left and right navigation bars can be hidden, to maximize screen space, and all the tools have mouse-over labels to help newbies learn what's what. There are also components for easy export to other programs like Photoshop.

According to the publisher, the program is compatible with Windows Vista, however, we were unable to install it on our Enterprise edition. Also, all users must register on the publisher's Web site to get the free serial number for the program.

"Easy 3D"

April 11, 2008  |  By guitarplaya68

 |  Version: DAZ Studio 2.0.0.21

Pros

It's a great 3D program, especially for beginner to intermediate. Seamless integration with Bryce5.5 and up. DAZ also has a Photoshop plug available for Studio, which is perfect since Adobe is beginning to implement some 3D functionality with CS3. And all for a really nice price!

Cons

DAZ has done a better job of abandoning Bryce than Corel ever did...

"Download.com Doesn't Deliver"

April 01, 2008  |  By botfun

 |  Version: DAZ Studio 2.0.0.21

Pros

I love DAZ 1.8. DAZ 2 is supposed to be better. Unfortunately, I can't download it. I've tried multiple times for over a week. I've tried from my pc at home on dial up and from my pc at work on broadband.

The download completes before the file has fully downloaded. The best I've done on broadband is 16 MB. I came closest last night on dial up with 88 MB.

Cons

DAZ's choice of Download.com to deliver their outstanding software was obviously a mistake. I'd love to have DAZ 2.0 and will download it when DAZ makes the software available for download on a server that can handle the job.

"A great way to create CG art."

March 26, 2008  |  By Quasar_wpg

 |  Version: DAZ Studio 2.0.0.21

Pros

This software is not only free but powerful as well. I have been using it for a number of years now and it keeps getting better and better. The plugins that can be purchased for it really add new depth to it's function and render capabilities. With the release of version 2.0.0.21 there is now a bridge between this software and the Hexagon modeling software, making it easy to send figures back and forth between the two. The new features and plugins that are planned for the future makes this software one to watch. I'm really excited for rigging to come out eventually.
